Fandango’s One Word Challenge today is chemical. The first thing I thought of was a the periodic table of the chemical elements. Going to old standy wiki, I found a paragraph with several terms related to the periodic table. First putting them into a list, I waited for inspiration and it came. Today’s offering is titled, Chemical Table. You will see the list of terms to the left and the poem to the right of it.

tables                                                 the table of our universe

elements                                            is made from 10,000 things

atomic numbers                                 patterned numbered chart

electron configurations                      mixed and matched

properties                                          to make it pretty and sturdy

trends                                                and in style

metals, non-metals                            shiny and dull accents

periods                                               pegged together

groups                                                in uniform lines

halogens                                            accented with airbrushed stencils

noble gases                                        stained with mahogany spray

blocks                                                 blocked legs

atomic orbitals                                    stamped circles on them

unidentified elements                          carved strange symbols

synthesis of new elements                  that look familiar

reactions                                              hope for applause
